Research – High levels of DON in European corn and wheat harvest

All About Feed

Many parts of Europe can expect potentially high levels of mycotoxin contamination in the upcoming 2020 corn and wheat harvest, according to results of a new mycotoxin prediction tool released by Biomin.

The forecast is based on a mycotoxin prediction tool that delivers daily assessments of expected mycotoxin levels in corn and wheat harvests. One major trend identified in the firm’s forecast of mycotoxin occurrence is that deoxynivalenol (DON), or vomitoxin, has a high probability to exceed a risk threshold level of 150 parts per billion (ppb) in corn in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe, and a similarly high probability to exceed 150 ppb in wheat in Northern Europe.
